At first glance I was extremely intrigued with La La Land and what this movie might be about, and as I watched I was amazed at how wonderful La La Land truly was. If you are looking for a film that will make you happy but at the same time give you a good laugh, La La Land is the movie to see.

La La Land is also filmed like a classic Hollywood film with a modern twist, which makes it even more unique to watch. I highly recommend this movie to everyone; it is a film that you will not want to miss out on!
God encourages us to chase our dreams and work hard for what we want, just as Mia and Sebastian were eager to reach their dreams in La La Land. If we work hard for what we want in life God will honor us and lead us in the way to attain our dreams. Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” If we just ask God for guidance and seek him no matter what he will establish our dreams and guide us in the way we need to go.
